drank Raspberry Oolong by A C Perch's
1938 tasting notes

Sorry I haven’t been posting lately; I have finally reached that stage in my tea life where I am drinking tea but don’t have much of a desire to write about it. Mostly it’s not new tea, for one. Actually I have been missing my usual “tea times” for no good reason except that I am preoccupied and stressed. Tea would make it better, of course!

The first time I had this tea, I was underwhelmed. The second time, I was pleasantly suprised. This time I am not surprised, but it is pleasant. The raspberry is so juicy and natural tasting, and the oolong is a nice background. It’s not really easy to pinpoint as a green oolong or dark oolong, but rather has subtle characters of each. A slight touch of roastiness here, the hint of a floral background there. It’s really quite a nice blend.

Glad to see you Dinosara! Sorry life has been stressful as of late. :( I sometimes feel like just lurking in the background – the last week has been a week full of get other things done so I find I have to keep myself away from here in order to do that. Its understood and you should do what feels right to you!

Thanks guys. I of course have been checking Steepster nonstop and reading everyone else’s notes and the discussions… not even that can keep me away! :)

Raspberry is my darling fruit …and a reason why I am always reticent to have a tea with this flavor fearing some disappointment. Welcome back on the writing side of steepster :)

Hope you feel less stressed soon. Tea does help somehow, it is really quite magic.

And funny, I also had this one yesterday! No tasting note, because i really had nothing new to add. The last little tiny bits of the sample Angrboda so kindly sent me. Raspberry is indeed a special fruit.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
